Part of the Grand Capitulation, i.e. the "deal" that Obama negotiated with Boehner and McConnell, was setting up a committee of six Democrats and six Republicans to come up with a plan to slash the Debt by $1.5 Trillion. Today, McConnell and Boehner named the six Republicans. Each of these six have:
"signed a pledge to Grover Norquist's Americans for Tax Reform that they will not vote to raise taxes."
Why even have a committee that is doomed to failure from the start? How can we possibly get out of this mess without raising taxes on the wealthiest Americans, or at least rescinding those tax cuts put in place by George W. Bush?

We have become an illogical country.
